Reviewer: Zaorish - - October 9, 2012
Subject: Great show. Good AUD.
Excellent show, particularly the 1/2 step and nfa>gdtrfb.

Compared to the other auds available, this one has a little more on the "nice echo-y drums", and a little less of the "warmth and closeness", ie feels a little further from the stage. Phil's big in this though, which is cool.

Subject: Don't Sleep on this Show!!
'77 (deservedly) gets more props, but '78 has a litany of amazing show as well. This puppy is a beast, with great instrumentation (led by Jer of course) and strong vocals throughout.

The highlights: Half-Step opener is a monster, and is bracketed by a long and flowing Let it Grow to close the set. Second set highlights include a deep Eyes and excellent NFA, among others.

Subject: imperfect sound? so what; perfect show.
be thou not snooty about AUD quality
lest ye skippeth shows such as this one.

just reading the set list got me stoked,
and every tune is solid. energy! creativity!

Subject: monster of a show
this is a great, somewhat under-the-radar show. Check out the let it grow from set one and all of the set II, really exceptional playing from all involved. This show is also one of the only 78s out there without a sbd in circulation yet.

Subject: EYES
We had our Purple Barrel episode in Springfield we went to Boston crashed a few nights then PROVIDENCE, just when we thought we couldn't get a better show the boys came out and played an exceptional EYES among a killer first set(BEW,CASS, LIG etc) as well. When Jers voice was ragged (alot in 78') he seemd to make it up with his playing.If your'e an AUD person you'll apreciate this one.This is cleaner then the other one posted, this is the first time I Dl this show, waiting was worth it. Taper Section was not yet allowed so stealth recordings were usually done off of balcony railings and such.Phil is heavy in the Mix,Yeah! Keith?
